St Mary’s Catholic High School wins award for exceptional 2016 results
St Mary’s Catholic High School has been nationally recognised for its exceptional 2016 performance by the Schools, Students and Teachers Network (SSAT). Educational Outcomes data analysis from SSAT has shown that the school is in the top 10% of non-selective schools nationally for attainment and in the top 20% for progress in the 2016 end of Key Stage 4 examinations.
The school’s SSAT Educational Outcome Awards will be presented at a regional celebration event held to draw attention to the work of high-achieving, improving and innovating schools and teachers.
Sue Williamson, Chief Executive of SSAT said:
“It’s my great pleasure to commend St Mary’s Catholic High School on their excellent 2016 performance, and to have the opportunity to highlight and share their great work at an SSAT Educational Outcomes celebration event. We know how hard teachers work to ensure the success of every child. SSAT’s Educational Outcomes award recognises the professionalism, commitment and hard work of the leaders, teachers and students at St Mary’s. A big thank you and well done to the pupils, staff and governors.”

School Direct Teacher Training
St Mary’s is the lead school for the School Direct programme in our local area. Our programme offers you an initial teacher education programme of the highest quality, supported by outstanding teachers in our own and partner schools at both primary and secondary level. You will gain practical hands-on experience from the start combined with a solid academic background in collaboration with our partner universities in Sheffield. We have filled our primary places for the year 2017-18 but still have places on the secondary programmes indicated. Your in school training would take place in two of our partner schools which include St Mary’s, Tupton Hall School, Brookfield Community School, Dronfield Henry Fanshaw and Highfields.
All our School Direct courses lead to both Qualified Teacher Status and either a PGCE (60 Masters’ credits) or PGDE (120 Masters’ credits) qualification. Newly Qualified Teachers who have been trained within our alliance are highly sought after by our partner schools and other schools in the local area who recognise the quality of our training programme.
